Craddock, Jefferson, M.A.
Classroom Teacher
Saudi Aramco Schools, Ras Tanura MS, Ras Tanura, Saudi Arabia

Jeff Craddock was born in South Dakota, raised in Michigan and Louisiana, and started his overseas experience in 1979 when he began teaching at Ras Tanura School in Saudi Arabia. He has been there as a part of the Aramco Schools teaching faculty for twenty-seven years.

Jeff’s mother was a school teacher and his father was a career FBI agent, but his dad was never given a foreign assignment, so the interest in working overseas hit Jeff (and his sister, a foreign service officer) on his own. Both his wonderful children were born in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia and still think of the Middle East as their home.

The IMDB website lists Jeff as a member of the Screen Actor’s Guild, and he has several film, stage and television credits. Jeff enjoys being a dad, teaching ballroom dancing, playing baseball and tennis, scuba diving, boating, skiing, politics and every aspect of theater production.
